That the Deep South in the '90s feels nowhere near as relevant here shouldn't blind Bonfire fans to the fact that this vast Dickensian satire is a better developed, more humane novel. Wildly inconsistent in pace, maybe, but the very essence of "event publishing". ——————————————————————————————————1/6—— Published by Cape £20 NOW IT'S EVEN EASIER TO FIND LOVE: TELETEXT DATING ITV p390 Pets Motors Recipe Green

Here's the novel. Actually, Thompson wrote it in 1959 before drug-crazed "Gonzo" journalism swept him to notoriety. Published for the first time to coincide with the Fear And Loathing film, it's an oddly tame sub-Hemingway effort — mannerly and even a little dull. ——————————————————————————————————2/6—— Published by Bloomsbury £16.99 NOW IT'S EVEN EASIER TO FIND LOVE: TELETEXT DATING ITV p390 Pets Motors Recipe GGreen

Teletext showbiz writer Vic's an impressive exception. His metaphysical morality tale about the emotional cost of pursuing a fragile, fashionable life is a sophisticated serving of sly humour, imagination and sensibility. It's a quirkily stylish d—but from an imaginative new publishing house. ——————————————————————————————————3/6—— Published by Citron Press £6.99 Available mail order 0845 602 2202 or from bookshops in January.
